Another Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins staff member is heading west for the NHL’s newest team.
Just a few days after Doug Davidson became the Las Vegas Golden Knights’ strength and conditioning coach, the team announced that head athletic trainer Kyle Moore is also coming aboard next season as an associate at the same position.

This is just another feather in the cap for the Penguins’ hockey operations staff and the awesome job it has done over the last couple years.
Our former writer Seth Lakso profiled Davidson at the beginning of last season. He mentions how Davidson pushed for revamped team meals, which players and the coaching staff ended up raving about as the year went on. His conditioning regimen also did wonders for some of the players, including goaltender Tristan Jarry.
Moore was plenty busy too, with Garrett Wilson, Thomas Di Pauli and others experiencing significant injuries last season. Players had nothing but good things to say about their recovery program.
The fact that an NHL expansion team is coming to Wilkes-Barre to help fill out its staff is a reflection of how other organizations are taking notice of what Pittsburgh is doing behind the scenes. Clearly, the organization is building a great reputation.
Best of luck to the both of them.
